Rockwell Collins was selected to provide flight control and navigation systems for the Small Tactical Unmanned Air System (STUAS) program, the Cedar Rapids, Iowa-based company announced Tuesday.

Boeing subsidiary Insitu, of Bingen, Wash., last month was awarded the contract for the STUAS/Tier II from the Naval Air Systems Command for its Integrator unmanned aircraft system (UAS). Rockwell Collins said it will work with Insitu during a two-year engineering and manufacturing development effort to mature the UAS design to meet the STUAS requirements. More

"We are pleased to be working closely with Insitu on this important program," said David Vos, Rockwell Collins senior director of UAS and Control Technology. "Rockwell Collins' role in the STUAS contract validates the reliability and performance of our Athena flight control and navigation systems."
